Subject: I've listened closely...
I'm no expert, but it seems to me like the early '80s aren't well represented because the recordings that exist from that period are not generally great. I know I pay less attention to this era than any other era save for mid-'90s. I think that's largely due to the fact that I haven't heard many clean recordings from the years '80 through '86. For me, the sound quality is so important. The really special thing about this band (I don't need to tell anyone this) is the chemistry, and recordings that don't allow you to hear what everyone in the band is doing do a disservice to the music. To everyone out there who is working to bring us these amazing copies of shows we might not have noticed before, thank you. I already loved this band, but I love this music even more now that I can hear with pristine clarity the interplay between these incredible musicians.
This show has caused me to re-evaluate my biases about this period in the band's history. I will definitely be playing this show again.

I'm always grateful to have these shows available from the fine people who recorded, cleaned up, transferred, etc. but have to give this a three and three for sound and performance. Peace.
